durable than standard ones used now. while americans took the day off for thanksgiving, was trading. for that and the rest of the news before the bell we turn to jackie deangeles at cnbc headquarters. good black friday. >> good morning to you, too. futures are lower as investors focus on europe. markets in the red. after comments about arranging the debt crisis. moody's downgraded hungary today. this following a disappointing bond auction on thursday. now the markets are only open half a day, but we did see the
dow fall 236 points on wednesday. the nasdaq losing 61 points to 2460. and mortgage rates have been flipping again, freddie mac says the average rate on a 30-year fixed loan sells to 3.98% from 4% the previous week. rates have been below 5% for two week this is year. they are not translating into higher home sales or refinancing. this could be the worst year for home sales in 14 years. high unemployment and small wage gains are making it harder for people to qualify for the loans. and finally at&t may be moving closer to scrapping the $39 billion takeover of t-mobile. they are withdrawing the fcc application to focus on trying to win anti-trust approval. regulators say it will reduce competition and result in massive job losses. at&t saying it's going to take a $4 billion charge if the deal falls apart.
back to you. thank you very much. >> skiing just in time for thanksgiving. thanksgiving day was opening day at sugar bowl ski resort in tahoe. one called it perfect. it's soft and wet and not powdery is not their idea of a good time. only one lift was open at sugar bowl. about 250 people bought tickets. many years there's not enough snow. of course. by this time, 80% of the resort was open. let's take a look at the forecast. >> we hope to get a little more snow than yesterday.
a dry san jose right now. 42 degrees. including san francisco. a little bit of mist and drizzle. for more headlines, we have a weak system causing a few north bay showers and maybe a few sprinkles for the rest of the morning. then changing over to partly cloudy skies for the afternoon. and our weekend temperatures will start to climb on up. here's the system. almost impossible to find it on the satellite. it's a weak boundary providing enough lift to give us sprinkles in the north bay toward napa county and fairfield. there you see the light rain on the coast around highway 1 and down towards the south bay. right around the santa cruz mountains you will find light rain this morning. the future cast is picking up more fog as opposed to rain
drops. we get high pressure inland that tends to act like a fog machine. this is the main concern towards the weekend with high pressure building in. it will put the fog to the east bay valleys and probably to the north bay. o so the mornings start off with some fog, but the afternoon is looking pretty good on sunday. throughout the bay area, temperatures in the low 60s around san jose. close to 60 in san francisco. a few sprinkles for the morning. partly cloudy for the afternoon. an easy drive to the sierra. temperatures in the 40s and 50s. look for mid-60s inland after morning fog clears and the dry forecast all the way through at least thursday of next week. back to you. appreciate it, rob. along with the good vibrations, thanksgiving can be a day when, let's face it, maybe there's a little family tension out there. you know what i'm talking about. but they took it to another level. how football took a backseat to the bigger story line.
and then cutting over to john harbaugh on the other. on thanksgiving night in prime time the nfl wanted to make this a family affair. it doesn't happen too often. >> on the football field, no less. and the the fans at the old w tar wagon saloon in downtown san jose. >> it's a rivalry that nobody planned on. >> the harbaugh family was at the game. so they were together anyway. >> they probably knew what they signed up for with the football coaches. for them it's probably like having a family get together. both teams reflect their coaches and their philosophy.
and on this night brother john was better than his brother. >> final score on that one. in case you missed it. the first ends 16-6, ravens win it. 4:51 now. a few black friday sales for the sports fan in your family. details are coming up. and 40 beagles from a research lab. we'll have their story of freedom up next. i love teaming with the best
